This past week I was staying with my tia and tio along with my cousins in my hometown where I grew up; South Gate, CA. A lot of the times I say no often to certain things, when I know I should practice saying yes. My cousins always show me and remind me not to be afraid to explore, get out of my comfort zone and get my hands a little dirty. So why not take an adventure to what once was a busy street, and after an earthquake is now a place to roam and make memories. It was such a beautiful view, the ocean has my heart and hearing the waves crash against the rocks is my absolute favorite. I feel we sometimes take these little things for granted, the smell of the ocean and the great outdoors with good company. So here’s to us all taking more risks, saying yes, and trying to make ourselves happy with the daily negativity struggles many of us have.
